  Attrition is a simple, vanillalike data pack that’s designed for players who want something harder than regular survival, but not quite as harsh as hardcore mode. Here’s how it works:
  • You lose one heart of max health each time you die
  • You gain one heart of max health each time you eat an enchanted golden apple, up to a maximum of 15 hearts
  • If you die with only one heart of max health left, you lose the game and are put into spectator mode
  Attrition plays sounds and displays custom chat messages whenever any of these three events happen, but it has no effect on any other aspect of gameplay.

  Attrition is meant to blend in well with vanilla Minecraft – almost as if it were simply an alternative gamemode. Because of this, it can be played by itself, or in conjunction with other data packs. Enjoy :D

Are you looking for expanded features for this data pack, like lifesteal or multiplayer revive?
If so, take a look at Attrition's companion data pack, Contrition!

-------------------------------------


🔢 Options menu
  A custom options menu for Attrition is available via the /function mp.attr:display_options command (picture shown below). You can use this menu to test out the data pack, customize your experience with it, or uninstall it.

🏞 Resource pack
  Attrition includes an optional resource pack by AmyTheMudkip that subtly retextures the player’s heads-up display, including the health bar, armor bar, and hunger bar. A side-by-side comparison can be seen below.

ℹ️ Extra info
  Attrition is compatible with both single and multiplayer, and it should work seamlessly with any other data pack you use. However, it is not designed for Hardcore mode, so please play in a regular survival world!

  When playing Attrition, do whatever it takes to stay alive! One tip is to prepare backup gear and store it near your respawn point – that way, if you do die, you'll be less likely to die again while trying to retrieve your original items.

  In vanilla Minecraft, enchanted golden apples are a mostly useless trophy item. In Attrition, however, they are the most valuable item in the game. Explore your world regularly to find them and keep your maximum health high!

you know that the attrition is in requiem mod? you should credit the autor of the requiem mod, since you've came up with idea of making this datapack

Hi there, I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to say, but it seems like you might be accusing me of copying from the Requiem mod. I have two points in response.

First, according to the Github page for the Requiem mod, the "attrition status effect" was added in October 2020. If you scroll up here, you'll notice that my data pack was originally released in June 2020, which is, of course, earlier.

Second, while it is true that Requiem's attrition and my Attrition data pack have similar names and both involve post-death health loss, they are not the same thing. Requiem's attrition is a status effect involving mod-specific concepts like souls, hosts, etc. By contrast, my data pack does not need a mod loader and is designed to be as straightforward and vanillalike as possible. The rate at which max health is reduced after death is also different between the two.

Hope this helps.

Yeah man, no hard feelings, glad you like the pack!

And the answer to your other question is yes! If you open the options menu, then click on the words "options menu", you will get access to a developer menu with even more options. From here you can customize the maximum amount of health you can accumulate, and you can even configure the amount of health you get from eating each enchanted golden apple. Enjoy!

EDIT btw the developer menu accepts arguments in health points NOT hearts so to get 30 hearts you put 60 in the command
